New York Yankees’ fourth outfielder, Aaron Hicks, is tearing it up on the field here in 2016. But who has the strongest arm in franchise history?
On Wednesday night against the Oakland Athletics, Hicks broke Stat Cast history by making the fastest outfield throw ever recorded.
Hicks made the catch running forward and then fired a one-hop strike into the glove of Brian McCann to nab Valencia to end the inning.
His bullet was clocked at 105.5 MPH which is the fastest ever recorded by Statcast.
So this got us thinking, who had the strongest arm in Yankees history?
Now, of course, we don’t have the luxury to statistically analyze players from way back in the day, but we do have scouting reports and some videos of players showing off their cannons.
Without further adieu, here are the five strongest outfield arms in New York Yankees’ history.
